Lumpia Shanghai Espesyal Recipe

Lumpia Shanghai Recipe -Updated

Hello Everyone!
Did you get excited seeing Lumpia on the photo? I'll do! This is my second favorite food next to Pansit. This is like updated version recipe, Since, I posted Lumpia recipe back when I started this blog which is like two years ago. I've seen few variations of lumpia recipe, so far I tried the Lumpia Shanghai-  which compose of meat usually ground pork and Vege Lumpia- which compose of vegetables but some folks add some rice noodles into the mix. What kind of Lumpia is your favorite? I prefer the Lumpia Shanghai myself, Since, I always made them for my daughter's birthday and some special occasions. Actually one of my favorite!  In this blog post, I'll be showing the step by step on how easy it is to wrap the Lumpia. Awesome!
Now, let's talk about the main ingredients? The Lumpia Wrapper-  If you are living abroad, you'll find lumpia wrapper at any Asian store. The Lumpia wrapper is so thin, delicate and easy to dry up. Make sure that you put towel on the top to make sure that it will stay soft and easy for the wrapping process later on. 
What to do if the Lumpia wrapper is frozen? which is so typical when your living abroad.
* Defrost- I leave the wrapper on the counter for like an hour or so while I'll make the filling
* Put in your microwave on DEFROST for like 25-30 second. Once you feel its soft and you can bend it. Then its good to go.:)
Some folks put some peppers, cabbage and other vegetables. I think they are equally delicious and I Love them all. What are your favorites on your Lumpia? 
The recipe that I'll be sharing you today is the recipe that my Mom taught me. So simple and so easy! C'mon you guys join me in my kitchen and I'll show you how easy it is to make this cute babies. So perfect for any occasion and surely impress everyone.

 Notes: Adjust the taste according to your preference. Don't forget to add your favorite vegetables. Double the quantity for larger crowd..wink:)-
